Colour Creations Showcase – Mossy Meadow – Basket of Blooms

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Showcase to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.

Week 29 – Mossy Meadow

This is our last colour for 2020, but we will continue mid-January 2021 with the remainder of the SU colours, after a much deserved break!

I really struggled coming up with something using Mossy Meadow – I think it is the darkness of it that throws me, but that is the challenge with this showcase. We all have our preferred colours and some we don’t warm to as much, and this is one of mine 😁

When I can’t figure out what to do, I head to the Stampin’ Up! colour coach for ideas and I selected the middle combination: Mossy Meadow – Flirty Flamingo Coastal Cabana

Mossy Meadow

I haven’t created too much with the Basket of Blooms stamp set so I thought that might be a good place to start, seeing as there is foliage for Mossy Meadow! I started by stamping the foliage once, then again without reinking, and instead of using markers to colour it, I used the Blending Brushes to add a softer layer of this dark colour. The Rectangle Stitched dies were used to cut it out. Using the Decorative Mask, I sponged the background and the edges.

Of course the blooms had to be Flirty Flamingo for that lovely pop of colour and I used the coordinating punch to cut them out. They also have Wink of Stella on them and some faceted gems in the centres.

The pot is stamped in Coastal Cabana on white card and coloured with blending brushes
(coming soon) before being fussy cut. I also sponged the ink behind where the pot would sit for some shading. I splattered Wink of Stella across the Masked Mossy Meadow layer before adding the centre panel. It really gives the card that extra sparkle!

Christmas, Handmade Cards, Holiday Catalogue, Stampin' Up!

Partridge in a Pear Wreath

Arrange a Wreath Bundle

My colour combination: Rich Razzleberry – Bermuda Bay – Bumblebee – Whisper White

Using Blending Brushes or a foam sponge roller, add colour directly from the inkpads of each of the feature colours onto a Whisper White strip of cardstock. This will create a beautiful soft background. Before adhering it to the front of your card base, flick some drops of Wink of Stella over it and allow it to dry for a few minutes.

Stamp 4 or 5 pears by inking them up on the Bumblebee inkpad, then take a Sponge dauber to add a little Bermuda Bay ink around the edges to get that two tone colour. Give your stamp a huff of breath to re-activate the ink before stamping onto white card, then cut them out with the coordinating die. Repeat the same process for the bird, starting with Bermuda Bay, then sponge Rich Razzleberry.

Die cut 3 wreaths in each of the colours and glue them together. Add the stamped images with dimenionals, so they pop up a little. Stamp your sentiment and add some Elegant Faceted Gems.

Colour Creations Showcase – Merry Merlot – Dove of Hope with Blended Background

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Showcase to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.

Week 26 – Merry Merlot

The Dove of Hope stamp set and coordinating Detailed Dove dies make gorgeous Christmas cards without too much effort.

Craft with Kate Colour Combination Merry Merlot Just Jade Whisper White

The card base is Merry Merlot, embossed with the Dainty Diamonds 3D TIEF. The Whisper White layer, I scored the border using the Simply Scored, at 1/8″ intervals. This is another great way to create borders without adding extra bulk to your card.

I used a Decorative Mask (oops, sorry this one is retired) but you can use any mask with Blending Brushes. Once I removed the mask, I found it a bit “in your face”, so I lightly brushed over it again to soften the look… much better! The sentiment is stamped in Merry Merlot before I added the dove.

Some Elegant Faceted Gems were added at the very end for a little bling.
